Pet Travel Story: Transporting a Dog to South Africa

Incredible Experiences: "Welcome home, Hannah!"

When I moved to South Africa, I knew the most difficult part of the move would be leaving behind my companion of six years, Hannah.

I mean, how do you explain to a dog the concept of continents and that you'll see her again someday? Don't get me wrong, this dog is smart enough to eat half of a pizza off the counter and leave the other half for me, but I'm not sure she can grasp global geography. What a teary goodbye...


As we researched options for shipping our dog to our new home, my husband got in contact with PetRelocation and a move specialist, who helped answer our questions about the shipping process. Over our months of decision-making, we had an excellent customer service experience with PetRelocation. That, combined with their years of expertise and great reviews, put us at ease with choosing to use their services. We are so glad we did!!

Our move specialist, Mandy, was so friendly and helpful in helping get Hannah ready for her big journey. I'm not sure how many other pets Mandy was helping move at the same time, but she sure made us feel like we were her only clients.

I trusted that PetRelocation would get Hannah safely to us, but what I didn't expect was that she would ENJOY her trip so much! After 72 hours of traveling and seeing only strangers, our little girl was in great spirits and great condition.


Hannah has now traded chasing squirrels for chasing tortoises and funny, big bugs. She loves her new home. We are so grateful to finally have her with us!

We recommend PetRelocation without hesitation!

Thank you,
